We stopped here on Presidents' Day without any preconceived notions and were pleasantly surprised by the engaging vibe created by the decor, staff, good, albeit expensive, food and music. In fact, the experience was so pleasant we were reluctant to leave and found a reason to linger with two cups of tea.

I must say their food is pretty darn good...a little pricey for what you get. I like the overall atmosphere except for the gaudy "jukebox" they put in...one of those electronic Touch Tunes. Totally takes away from the whole look of what Coffee Co was about. Not happy with all the "gotta buy something to sit down" signs everywhere. You used to be able to hang out but not anymore. The owner appears all about the money...just saying. BTW their roasted red pepper and guoda soup is awesome!! Don't like their current side toast with it..stale.

Great menu with lots choices for coffee, sandwiches, breakfast food, etc.

The biscotti was incredible, especially the red velvet one. Some of the best I have ever had.

Super friendly staff. Great atmosphere. Good prices.

After a few evening trips to the cafe for hot chocolate during the colder months, we were excited to return for a food experience. We read the story about the owner who makes all the food and were anxious to give it a try--love to support independent establishments. The menu sounded really inviting. We went for lunch on a Saturday afternoon and the place was fairly busy, so much so that while standing in line we almost left thinking that we wouldn't be able to get a table by the time our food was ready. We stuck it out though and did score a table.

We ordered a Country Ham sandiwch/panini and their famous (their words) East Street Chicken Salad sandwich. Now after tasting plenty of genuine country ham throughout the years, this was sandwich/panini was a let down. It tasted like your standard deli sliced ham, certainly not the country ham that we know and love. They would be better off renaming it to a ham sandwich/panini. The chutney was enjoyable though. Don't misunderstand, this wasn't bad but it certainly ranked as just average, nothing special.

The famous chicken salad seemed fresh, but again, not bad just simply nothing special.

Neither of the dishes were unacceptable, average sums it up well enough. Would we go back again for a meal? Probably not.

I love the coffee and food here. My wife and I come here all the time with the kids. I like to get the french toast coffee and she gets the pumpkin spice. These are much better than anywhere else. Unlike chain coffee shops this place has a very homey authentic feel to it. Our kids love coming here especially on open mic nights when local up and coming singers entertain the coffee drinkers. If you are meeting someone for lunch or getting hot chocolate for the kids in Christmas this place is always a good choice. Enjoy and be well!
